Visual Arts History at PCA

Visual art has been a part of our history since the Prescott Fine Arts Association was chartered in 1968. The first art exhibit covered all the available wall space on the theatre’s main floor. Since then, each season includes art exhibits that feature many local artists and youth. The annual Visual Art Scholarship Competition exhibit encourages local area students to pursue and be recognized for their creativity and passion for 2-d and 3-d art.
